Dorchester based, Tritex NDT has launched its new Multigauge 5700 Datalogger Metal Thickness Gauge. The new gauge, has all the advantages of the Multigauge 5600 but with the added benefit of storing readings on the gauge, the manufacturer said. The Multigauge 5700 Datalogger includes an onboard memory for recording measurements in either a grid or string format, or combination of both. The readings are then transferred to a PC or laptop using wireless technology, which also allows remote gauging if required. The software includes simple wizards which guide the user in setting up templates or files for various applications.
The gauge utilizes the Multiple Echo technique to ignore coatings up to 6mm thick and just measures the metal substrate. No grinding or removal of the coatings is required, significantly reducing preparation time and ultimately saving both time and money when carrying out inspections. All probes have Intelligent Probe Recognition (IPR), which automatically adjusts settings in the gauge when connected, resulting in a perfectly matched probe and gauge for enhanced performance. Also, the Automatic Measurement Verification System (AMVS) ensures only true measurements are displayed, even on the most heavily corroded metals.
Single crystal probes, which have a number of advantages when measuring on curved and corroded surfaces, are protected by a membrane ensuring the probe does not easily get damaged.
The new Multigauge 5700 Datalogger is supplied as a complete kit, ready to use, with a three-year warranty and free calibration for the life of the gauge.
